I’m a little busy this week and into next. It is the end of the semester so finals are fast approaching, projects need turned it. So I wanted to make sure that I posted another 13th Age blog post and monsters are one thing I know I can do well and fast. So please forgive two monsters in the same week Today’s monster is a creation of the Fleshcrafter, one of our… Read More

As we’ve been talking about all last month, we started a Patreon to support our blog. We asked our Patrons to tell us what kinds of blogs they want to see. They spoke clearly. They want to see more 13th Age and more class/career options. So that is what we will be focusing on this month. Will we be doing that exclusively, no, but that will be our focus. So today we… Read More

I know we haven’t done much for 13th Age as of late. So when we were creating the skunkdrill for Pathfinder and 5e, we couldn’t not create one for 13th Age as well. And that is a goal of ours with our Patreon: having the resources to support this fun game. So if you want to see more 13th Age material on the JBE Blog, support our Patreon today.

We at JBE are constantly hard at work at bringing you new products. So we don’t always devote the time we would like to updating our blog. Sure, we post previews of upcoming products or we talk about stuff that is in our current products, but we do not just create stuff for our blog as often as we would like. Oddly enough, these posts are some of our most popular. Take… Read More

I love me some 13th Age. It is a well built game and highly enjoyable, one you should check out if you are not familiar. I’d describe it as D&D 4th Edition without all the compromises that held 4e back from being a truly awesome game. Having said that, I know plenty of groups that will only play D&D 5e or Pathfinder. For GMs in such a group, I recommend doing a… Read More

This past weekend during my home 5e game, I threw something in a dungeon I never had before: a deva. Depending on your game and edition of the game, this is an angelic outsider or celestial. It was standing in the room with a curtain for a door. The characters listened at the door and (somehow) the cleric got the highest roll. I described the sound of large, feathery wings. The barbarian… Read More

It is about this time of year that some GM’s run holiday-themed game sessions. That got me wondering, how many GM’s actually do that? Fantasy or science fiction, it doesn’t matter, holidays work in both. Does your star-travelling furry race celebrate Life Day? Do your dwarves celebrate the freezing of the ground? If you have any stories you’d like to share, the comments section is open to you. So vote in the… Read More
